    The opening ceremonies were pretty flipping cool. I especially liked the Tai Chi masters in circular formation. I could have done without the Chinese military goose-stepping the Olympic flag to the flagpole, though [​IMG]

    It really was "wow!" wasn't it? My toddlers were so into the drummers at the beginning. It was moving to see them so into it.

    That was a pretty cool opening ceremony. I only like the gymnastics. I dont care for the other sports.

    I'm with dangerous chicken on this one!! I really loved most of the opening ceremony and heard the piece about how they told the drummers to smile to make it less "intimidating". But, the goose stepping soldiers sent chills down my spine. It just looked SO familiar!

    I kept thinking of Japan saying after Pearl Harbor - that they had awoken a sleeping giant...

    I think we may have awoken a sleeping dragon - and may live to regret it.
